AVG is good for a free Anti virus. But not worth paying for. Also Avast is better than AVG (both paid and free version)

But my choice will be Kaspersky internet security 2010, does the job for me and looks nice too

Maybe i was a bit too nice to avg I dont like it either, caused me many virus infections over time and generally sucked. I didnt get any BSOD's though, but i did get a virus (which it never detected) which pretty muched f'ed up my install.

There's the old saying that goes, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."

But in the case of MSE, I think it is, in fact, all that it's cracked up to be.

I have run the gamut over the years (paid lots of money), and I'm gonna stick with it.

It's unreasonable not to trust it because it's free; other free ones are very popular and highly regarded.

Maybe there's suspicion because it's Microsoft? Look. Do you really think MS would unleash a product on the world that is going to allow all those nice new computers with Windows 7 to get infected? C'mon.

I think the main concern, if that's the right word, is that it's so simple. This is by design, of course. No endless popup windows, no deep tweaks, no nagging, no nothing. Just that little green castle with the check mark.

I have run every online test I could locate, and MSE found each and every threat and nuked it. It even found trojans in downloaded music I have had stored for years.

I like it.

you know, why people dont believe it, because it's new and it's product of Microsoft. For so many years Microsoft tried to make their OS secure and etc. But even after all this years Windows is one of the most vulnerable OSs.
And MS once already unleashed product which wasnt worth it (VISTA!!!), so they could have made the same mistake again.
And most people just dont want to believe on products of one company. (Microsoft OS, Microsoft Firewall, MSE.
No offence meant to anybody. It was just my opinion.
